South Beach Wine & Food Festival arrives for the 15th time to Miami and its beautiful southern beaches next month, ushering in cooler temps and hot chefs. We’re pretty excited about the dinner Michael is cooking on Friday, February 26 with friends Jonathan Waxman and Aaron Brooks and are here to share the menu with you first!
“”I look forward to playing hooky with Michael,” shares Jonathan, this year’s Festival Tribute Dinner honoree. “Plus late drinks at the Broken Shaker and lunch at Michael’s!”
Host chef Aaron Brooks of the Four Seasons Miami and Edge Steak & Bar (1435 Brickell Avenue, Miami, FL 33132) is just one of those chefs that chefs want to work with. Talented, clearly. Maybe more importantly is the peace of mind a host like Aaron brings to the table. You know he has your back no matter what, drama-free. Sometimes it’s a kitchen like this that can get you through a long service — or the demands of a marathon food festival weekend — with a smile on your face and a kick in your step.
“Michael has been a great support since I moved to Miami over four years ago,” he shared. “His food reigns true with my philosophy of serving tasty, uncomplicated dishes grounded on traditional technique. The same goes for Jonathan, he is a guy that truly believes in the product and treating it with the ultimate respect, and by doing so gets you the best flavor from what you cook. Basically letting the ingredients speak for themselves. Cooking with these guys is going to be absolutely awesome!’
